How can we effectively and efficiently kill mosquitoes carrying the malaria parasyte

What are the best ways to kill mosquitoes? Mosquitoes are very annoying and can also carry diseases. One such disease being malaria, a disease that kills over a million people a year, and a majority of its victims are children under five years of age. If we could kill mosquitoes carrying the disease we would halt the main way malaria is carried, significantly decreasing the amount of deaths. I just watched a fascinating video describing the different ways we can kill mosquitoes that are very effective.  http://www.ted.com/talks/bart_knols_cheese_dogs_and_pills_to_end_malaria

TED talk: Do schools kill creativity?

I just watched a Ted talk on if schools kill creativity. The speaker, Ken Robinson, talked about how all education systems in the world are alike. In every educational school, math and science are pushed while creative courses are discouraged and stigmatized. He suggested that at a young age we push students to take the classes they are interested in not just educational ones.

Introduction

Hello, my name is Noah Strickland. I thought I would let you know a little bit about me.

One thing you should know about me is that I have a really big family. In just my immediate family I have my Mom, three sisters and one brother. Even though all of my sisters and my brother are half-siblings I treat them no differently than if they were my full-siblings. I am the youngest of my sibling and am regarded as the “Baby”, even though my height exceeds all of theirs. My father's side of my family is much larger than my mothers, but they are both very large.

I am in the Future Business Leaders of America (Fbla) club. My friend, Luke persuaded me to join the club along with him. I was hesitant at first, but I joined and it turned out to be quite enjoyable. I do not aspire to go into the field of business. The reason I joined the club was because being in the club looks good to colleges.

I go to Fit4life to workout. The Fit4life gym is located behind Zaxby's. I go every day right after school ends unless I have a Fbla meeting. I really enjoy working out; it helps me lose weight and is good for relieving stress.

Well, that's about all you really need to know about me.
